believe it, more wolverine news

Couldn’t be a day without Wolverine news. Seriously, this is getting insane. Hugh Jackman should be dead at this point. I don’t think the man can physically do any more press for Wolverine. If it fails, it sure ain’t his fault. He was on Stern today too, I missed the interview. Hopefully it will be [...]

no, not red dawn wolverines, the real wolverine

Your daily dose of Wolverine, which I’ve been informed I’ll be seeing Sunday: Just in case you watched the pirated version of the movie online, you’ve still got to see the movie on the big screen if you want to see the full movie. And you better stay until after the credits. Even though Wolverine [...]

finale watch (chuck, heroes)

Finale season is off to a bad start – the Chuck finale blew.  (SPOILERS COMING, SPOILERS COMING, SPOILERS COMING!!!) Why would you turn Chuck into a super agent guy? Isn’t the premise and charm of the show that he’s this dorky doofus in a world of super agents? So what does that mean when you turn him into [...]

thanks everyone!

PopRox is going to go over 50,000 hits today — and I have all of you to thank for it. What started out a while back as something to distract me from the mundaneness (word?) of the regular work day has become a way for a whole bunch of people to get their slightly biased entertainment news and [...]

pick at your own risk

Anyone who can choose their favorite Simpsons character is a better person than me. Here’s my top 5, in no particular order: –Homer. OK, I was wrong, picking Homer is pretty easy. One of the three or four best TV characters of all time, and yes, he is the funniest. Classic episode: Right. Like anyone [...]

cannes time

This one is going to be quick, I have to run. But the Cannes Film Festival released its movies in competition this morning. Some highlights: Inglorious Basterds. A bit of a surprise that Quentin put this into the competition segment, but Cannes loves Quentin and Quentin loves Cannes. Maybe this is a favor. I doubt [...]

summer movie lovin’

Lots of summer movie talk today: Nothing like starting off with some Wolverine bonus stuff — but what is up with that picture of Ryan Reynolds!?!?!? He looks like he’s channeling his days on Two Guys and a Girl. Or even Fifteen. But I challenge anyone to watch the Gambit preview and not think of [...]

silly adults — movies are for kids

Chances are you take your kids to the movies, drop them off and go home. At least that’s what Hollywood is finding out since adult-themed movies — no, not porn — have fizzled at the box office since the recession hit. We’re through 18 weeks of the surprising 2009 box office, and exactly one of [...]

the tv bubble

It’s pretty easy to cancel Kath & Kim, Lipstick Jungle or Viva Laughlin. But what about Life? Or Chuck? Or Without a Trace? That’s the problem plaguing networks right now — what defines a “hit”? Just 10 years ago, an average show pulled in about 15 million viewers a week. If you got less than 10 million [...]

don’t bother break-ing free

Some links to get you through the weekend, along with my apologies for not posting yesterday, I got off to a late start: Forgot to mention this earlier, but tomorrow is Record Store Day, and Main Street Jukebox in Stroudsburg is celebrating with bands and specials. The live entertainment starts at 6 p.m. Who knows [...]
